Mission of the Month – National Youth Gathering

 

Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.  The Gathering will be held on July 11-15, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN.

During the five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s Word, worship, service, and fellowship with others from across the Synod. This event is organized by LCMS YouthMinistry in Saint Louis, MO.

Youth will meet thousands of friends from across the world at the LCMS Youth Gathering. From the early morning hours to late evenings, Gathering emcees and Morning Session leaders will be guide everyone through the LCMS Youth Gathering. These leaders will help unpack the theme, Real. Present. God. (based on Psalm 46), and walk alongside participants as they learn to apply the Psalms to their everyday life.

13 of our High Schoolers from Faith will be attending this life shaping event along with 6 adult leaders.  Praise God!

We will be leaving on July 10 and returning home July 16.  Continue to keep us in your daily prayers.  Thank you for your continual outpouring of love, support, and joy for everyone that will be attending the National Youth Gathering!  May the Lord be with us all as He continues to build this community of blessed believers in and with Him.
